VZW M8 Splash Screens


Disclamer - If this breaks your phone, you did something wrong. Don't blame me.


Instructions

You must have adb installed.
Download your splash screen from below
Put this file in your /platform-tools folder

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
Code:
fastboot flash zip splash.zip
Code:
fastboot reboot
I didn't create this just modified the one found here by @graffixnyc.


Now look at your pretty powered by android logo

Does this give you that red text disclaimer on the bottom like it did on the HTC One M7? I remember it did this until someone modified the HBOOT.

What gives you the red text is the recovery. You will not see red text with this unless you boot into recovery.

Ah, okay thanks!

Do you know if a splash screen from the HTC One M7 would work? Just curious.

Yep just replace the android-info.txt with this one.

The zip you provided has the .txt extension. Why do I remove it?

Thanks!

My bad, I guess you can leave it there, I just checked the file that I flashed and it is correct. For some reason thought that it was a not a txt file. So disregard that.

Thanks man!

EDIT: Here is a splash screen I used on the M7. I didn't create it, but it was one of my favorites. I just tested it and it worked fine.

It looks similar, but without the green progress dots

Very nice job, a pic of the splash would be nice.
also I'd like to post some of my own, should I make a new thread or do you want to add them to OP?













The only way to rid the red text is by editing the hboot.

Yeah we should have a thread for splash screens and boot animations or add a bunch to this OP.
